Southern rail conductors' strike to compound drivers' walkout
RMT calls 24-hour strike to immediately precede three days of action by Aslef’s drivers, in sign dispute is likely to drag on
The RMT has called a fresh 24-hour strike by conductors on Southern trains, to come immediately before three days of drivers’ strikes, a move that underlines that the dispute, and commuter misery, is unlikely to end soon.
Its members will strike on Monday 23 January, while Aslef’s drivers will start another round of strikes the following day. Drivers will stage their third day of strikes this week on Friday, halting virtually all of Southern’s 2,242 scheduled daily services.
